scouts-l Mail Archive for June of 2000: Camping Meals
Mon Jun 05 2000 - 14:46:00 CDT
I've been "volunteered" to organize food for our Pack camping trip -- coming
up this weekend. We have from 21 people (5 adults, 16 children) for some
meals to 27 (7 adults, 20 children) for others, covering Friday dinner to
Sunday lunch. We're pretty well set on dinners (tacos, burgers&dogs), and
breakfasts (pancakes, individual cereal boxes), but I'm having a hard time
coming up with ideas for lunch. The "guys" don't see why we can't just do
burgers&dogs for lunch as well as dinner, but I'd like a *bit* of variety --
and to stay away from having to get a fire going in the middle of the day if
Ideas? Suggestions? I'm looking at a rough budget of about $2/person/meal.
Next question -- I know I've seen great web sites that help you calculate
amounts of food for different numbers of people, but they disappeared with
my old bookmarks. Can anyone share a url or 2?
